The poor Chateaufort townhomes. This development was built in the shadow of the Mies Van Der Rohe complex in Lafayette Park, and while they are not too shabby, they'll always be second fiddle to that other development with the famous-name architect. Let's have a look at one that's been listed for $120,000. When it first came on the market in 2009, the asking was $152,500 but the price chop seems not to be moving things along. But maybe it should. This place is pretty darn nice. It's a three bedroom and two-bathroom home with two levels that are 1,500 square feet each. The private patio and luscious green neighborhood will appeal to the outdoor enthusiasts. Oh and enjoy walking to a Dollar General. (Heh. That's not really a perk. Maybe getting to argue about it on DetroitYES! is?) No, this place does not have the modern exterior a design enthusiast loves, but we'd buy it for the big ol' windows anyhow.
